How to Make
  • 1

    Overlap orange paper by 1/4" and glue together. The piece should measure 12" x 23 3/4".

  • 2

    Measure 1/2" from the end of each of the long sides, and draw a line to create the margins of your checkerboard. Do not cut past these lines.

  • 3

    Draw four lines in each direction from the center glue line 1 3/8" apart, ending at the margins.

  • 4

    Use an utility knife to cut along each line, creating eight strips of black paper that measure 1 1/4" x 12" each.

  • 5

    Weave black strips through the cuts on orange paper. Alternate weaving rows to create a checkerboard. Glue loose ends to the back of the checkerboard.

  • 6

    Follow directions on the bat pattern to make two bats. Glue on opposite ends of the checkerboard.

  • 7

    Center the checkerboard on the foam or mat board and glue in place.

    After glue is thoroughly dry, laminate if desired.
